Ugandan Anti-Gay Rally Announced for February 17

Jim Burroway

January 15th, 2010

Last December, we reported that Ugandan Pentecostal pastor Martin Ssempa had announced a nationwide anti-gay rally for January 19. A few days later, two more religious leaders joined that call for a rally to support for the draconian Anti-Homosexuality Bill. Now Reuters is reporting that Ssempa, who has close ties to several American evangelical groups as well as Uganda’s president Yoweri Museveni, has announced a”million-man” march for February 17. It’s unclear whether this is a re-scheduling of the January 19 rally or an additional one.

Its a bluff, 1 Million people will not show up,,its a pity instead of demonstrations against corruption, dictatorship, the pastor is calling for a demonstration against issues most ugandans do not care about in there daily lives
